Re: Caribe races this past weekend

According to the Blood Horse, this is the third year that the Caribe Classico (I just know I butchered that name! :oops: ) was held at Gulfstream. A 45-1 shot from Venezuela won the classic. For me, two of the most enjoyable series of the year this past week at Gulfstream - the Caribe, and the Clai...

Re: Vox populi voting open

They certainly all have their own large fan bases, and one or two will be going home with an Eclipse in their pocket. Have to go with Belvoir Bay as well though. A wonderful story.

Maryland Racing Commission - A Good Blueprint...

The establishment of the new House Rules appear to be a very good step in the proper direction. Is this a microcosm of what is needed nationally - every state and track falling under the same rules and regulations - under one governing body, and continuously tweaking and strengthening those rules?
